would that there be a Vietnamese gourd or pumpkin. They are not naturally growing but the work of Vietnamese artist, Nguyen Thi Hoai Mo. Is there nothing we dont know

Bosom-shaped luffas found in Hanoi’s Goethe cafĂ©

Luffas formed into the shapes of women’s breasts displayed in the Goethe CafĂ©, a part of the German Goethe Institute, located on Hanoi’s Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, have amazed many people over the past few days.

All of the luffas there have a long shape and a pinkish color resembling that of human skin, rather than the usual green of the species. The fruits and vines “grow” upon on a bamboo frame set against a wall, creating a fresh-looking and close-to-nature feeling inside the cafĂ©.

In fact, these breast-shaped luffas are man-made ( Woman) products created by Nguyen Thi Hoai Mo, a 28-year old artist hailing from Ha Tinh.

She used silicon and composites to make them, and crafted the shape of each “fruit” by hand.

By adding art to the fruits, which are integral to Vietnamese rural life, Mo aimed to convey a message of femininity and women power from a more open perspective in the modern world.

You f****** are too knowledgeable altogether or else you have seen it elsewhere. Looks like I was taken in though if it is a hoax as it does seem to be, I thought it was the genuine article sent to me in an e-mail so I thought I would share it with you all for the laugh. Worse still there are people who have fallen for a dodgy 'company' who are selling seeds for this 'plant'. Not me I hasten to add.
